UniSent 2003 COM Add-in

Updated: 15-September-2004
There is another group mailbox-related utility here: RightFrom

Suppose that Outlook user John Doe has access to his personal mailbox and to the additional mailboxes (usually "Info" <>, "Sales" <> etc.) on Exchange server. When he replies to or forwards from these mailboxes the message goes into his primary mailbox Sent items folder.
This utility ensures that the message sent with the second mailbox's From address stay in the mailbox that it originated from (i.e. the sent message goes to Sent Items folder of the mailbox the item was sent from).

How it works

UniSent utility scans sender address of each sent message in the main mailbox Sent items folder and in case it matches the additional mailbox name moves the message to its Sent items folder.


Please exit Outlook in case it's running using File -> Exit and Log Off. Then download archive file. After downloading unpack and execute Setup.exe. Start Outlook and click Tools -> Options -> Other -> Advanced options...-> COM Add-Ins. You will see checked UniSent COM Add-in in the list there. Click OK three times. Then right-click on additional mailbox Sent Items folder. Select Properties -> General tab and place the string
##Sent items for UniSent##
as is, including ## signs, to Descriptions field. Press Apply. Press OK. You can mark the same way as many additional mailboxes' folders as you need.
Exit Outlook and then restart it. Now you're ready to test the utility.

UniSent picture

I have tested UniSent with Outlook 2000/2002(XP)/2003 under MS Windows 98/2000/XP and MS Exchange Server 5.5/2000/2003.

About this demo version.

This demo version is fully functional, but can work ONLY with additional mailbox named TEST. This mailbox Display name and Alias (Outlook Address book -> Global Address list -> TEST properties) both should be TEST. Commercial version certainly supports any mailbox names.

Q. I followed the installation instructions and the products both work great - except for one problem. I keep getting a message that pop's up and says: "A program is trying to access e-mail addresses you have stored in Outlook. Do you want to allow this?" This didn't happen until I installed this software. Is this something obvious to you that can be prevented?
A. These warnings are the result of Outlook security system activity. To eliminate them please download Redemption library and install it. After that UniSent will run in cooperation with Redemption and Outlook will work with no warnings at all.
I have got the registered version of Redemption library and so I have right to include it as part of UniSent registered version distribution package.

Q.  We do not want to use Redemption. Can you offer an alternative?
A.  If your clients are Outlook 2002/2003 running against Exchange 5.5/2000/2003, then you can use the Administrative form in the Outlook Security Settings Public Folder to add UniSent (special "trusted code" version) to the list of Trusted Add-ins.
See Administrative Options for the Outlook E-mail Security Update for more information.

Q. Does UniSent works only on messages that are replied to or forwarded, or will it also works with messages that I originate from scratch, using the account which is not the default?
A. UniSent moves each sent message whose sender display name matches the additional mailbox name (see the picture).

Q. Why UniSent does not work on my additional "Help Desk - MIS" mailbox?
A. UniSent does not like " - " in mailbox name "Help Desk - MIS". If you rename the mailbox to "Help Desk-MIS" (no spaces before and after a hyphen), UniSent will work OK.

Q. I am about to purchase this product but I wondering regarding updates/patches. What are the policies regarding updates? Do you provide them freely or as a purchase?
A. As a registered user, you will get free updates for one year from the date of purchase.
Once the new version is ready, this information will be e-mailed to all registered users. We will send updates via e-mail to those who request them.

Q.  I have already ordered your software and want to view data relating to my order.
A.  Just visit our Customer Care Center.
